Having been diagnosed with moderate COPD last year. I get breathless but it is manageable.
My main problem is acute spasm pain on both sides at the bottom of my ribs and back which seems to come on with activity.
Which ever way I move I cannot relieve the pain. It is getting worse by the day.
I can no longer get around the supermarket without a spasm attack and I am afraid I will collapse before I can get out.
I need to know if this one of the symptoms of COPD.
You guys seem to be the people to ask as I have lost all confidence in my doctors surgery.
Forgive me if I sound like a moaner.
Many thanks for any advice.
